Acné

Directed By: Frederico Veiroj


Charming and unique coming-of-age movie about young sexuality in Uruguay. Rafa, 13, has lost his virginity already at the local brothel, but spends the film trying to get his first kiss.

The subject of young sexuality is treated with great dexterity, never feeling forced or diluted, but neither is it exploited. The sense of awkwardness and lust is buttressed by what’s at heart a sweet, heartfelt search for real romance.

Grade: B
